AUDITORIUM UNIVERSITA AVOGADRO
Renovation and expansion of University of Piedmont
Client: University of Piedmont
Team: AM3 architetti associati, Studio Cangemi sas
Location: Vercelli (VC), Italy
Project status: competition – 1° prize ex-aequo
The project concerns the conversion and extension of the ‘ex 18’ pavilion of the Manica delle Donne and of the Pharmacy both belonging to the complex of the former St. Andrea Hospital which is now intended to house offices and departments of the University of Eastern Piedmont. The project aims to give a homogeneous character to the whole complex through a series of interventions on the ground and on some existing structures around the border, keeping strongly in mind the urban morphology that surrounds the entire complex of the ‘Cittadella della Cultura’.
The expansion of the ‘ex 18’ pavilion consists in adding three new lecture rooms to the neoclassical building which is the heart of the intervention.
